Actress Gemma Atkinson, 34, and her Strictly beau Gorka Marquez, 29, have teamed up for this year’s Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing.
The couple, who met of the BBC One show two years ago when Gemma was a contestant, will dance together on TV for the very first time.
Yesterday, Gemma and Gorka headed straight to the training room to rehearse for the show which will air on Christmas Day.
The couple, who are now parents to four-month-old daughter Mia, documented day one of rehearsals on social media.
Sharing a video from the training room with her 1.3 million followers on her Instagram Stories, Gemma asked her partner: “How am I doing?”
In repy, Gorka humorously pleaded: “Aljaz I need you”.
During her appearance on the show back in 2017, the former soap star was partnered with professional dancer AljaZ Skorjanec, 29.
The pair made it to the final, but eventually lost the trophy to Joe McFadden and Katya Jones.
When they returned home from rehearsals, Gemma shared another picture of the pair on Instagram.
